The Abitibi Eskimos are proud and elated to announce that Erik Robichaud has signed a contract with the Moncton Wildcats of the QMJHL (Major Junior).
The 2010-11 NOJHL “Rookie of the Year” was a “walk on” invite to the Wildcats camp and competed with 40 other forwards for a coveted starting job.
Robichaud is the fourth “black and gold” alumni to gravitate to the elite major junior ranks. He was preceded by Michel Champagne, Michel Charette and Marc-Alain Begin. All enjoyed productive successful seasons at the highest level of Hockey Canada junior hockey.
Congratulations Erik – well done and well deserved!
